THE OLYMPUS E-P5

EXPERIENCE DAY

We recently treated four WDC readers to a day out in London with the Olympus PEN E-P5, a selection of lenses, two professional models and a top pro photographer Here’s how they got on…

P for Peerless

A new chapter for the Olympus pen.

Before Olympus introduced the OM-D line of interchangeable- lens compacts, its Pen series cameras were the flagship Micro Four Thirds bodies. Now, the new 16.1MP Pen E-P5—with its metal chassis, 1/8000-second top shutter speed, tilting LCD, five-axis sensor-shift image stabilization, and built-in Wi-Fi — presents a compelling fingerless alternative to the highly acclaimed (and a bit long in the tooth) OM-D E-M5.

OLYMPUS VF-4 VIEW-FINDER £249

Announced at the same time as the PEN E-P5, the VF-4 is the latest in a line of attachable electronic view-finders (EVF) for the Olympus PEN range and XZ-2 (while it’ll also attach to some Leicas).

While some photographers will be quite happy with the rear screen for composition, the shooting style of a camera with a viewfinder is much more pleasurable, and using the VF-4 with the E-P5, it really enhanced our shooting experience.

The specification even eclipses the EVF on the OM-D, with an impressive resolution of 2.36m dots and a tilting mechanism of up to 90° for

Olympus Mons

BIGGEST VOLCANO

Let’s start small – relatively – with the biggest volcano in the Solar System. Olympus Mons can be found in the Tharsis Montes region of Mars and rises to a peak of 25 kilometres (16 miles) high and 624 kilometres (374 miles) wide with an 80-kilometre (50-mile) wide caldera. It towers over even the tallest mountains on Earth, Everest at 8.8 kilometres (5.5 miles) and Mauna Kea (which is 10 kilometres/6.2 miles if measured from the ocean floor), while dwarfing our biggest volcanoes with around 100 times more volume than Hawaii’s Mauna Loa.

The top of Mount Olympus, covered with snow, the slopes of the mountain — steep. The road leading to the top, passes through the forest. But here and there the trees suddenly disappear. Here bother the locals.
